  • What They're Saying: Gregg Berhalter

    "It's hard for me to understand how people gather that opinion because when I see him up close it's clear he has quality. When you look at his quality level in this group it's high. I've said all along it's not about the age of the player. I think it's about the quality of the player. If he's good enough to perform and he can fit and execute in the roles and responsibilities that we have for the position then he should be able to play, whether that's old or young. Michael is a good example of that. He's been doing well in camp. His leadership has been good, but also his execution has been excellent."
